I did try again but this time ran well, it is successfully installed. I guess it maybe because I did a update on my Fedora Lxde.

Glad to hear this is resolved. I think you simply got a corrupted download the first time.

Hi, stupid question here.  I am new to cryptos, and when I got the Electrum for bitcoins, the addresses for receiving were set to expire after a time.  I didnt see this option for Electrum LTC anywhere.  Do the addresses expire?  Thanks for any help!

I think you are comparing different versions of Electrum and Electrum-LTC. Electrum added the "Expires in" field to the Receive tab in version 2.1, which is why you won't see this option in Electrum-LTC 2.0.5.1. But don't worry, I'm going to post new binaries soon.

By the way, technically it's BIP70 payment requests that can expire, not addresses.

Thanks so much pooler.  Yeah, I am a little fuzzy on the terminology.  Right now I am learning about crypto currencies, playing around with some faucets.  However they look promising and I will likely be purchasing some litecoins soon.

Just edited the post above to add OS X binaries for v2.1.1.1.  Please check it out.  If no issues arise, I'm going to declare this version stable.

Hello I am trying to find the documentation for Electrum.  However electrum.orain.org site is down, and has been for a while now.  Just letting you guys know, hopefully it can get fixed.

Hello,

I have tested it with Ledger HW1. I put in working HW1, which was previously initialized by Ledger Chrome app. As a result, with some error messages it finished the process of generating addresses and finaly it seems to work. The problem is, it destroyed compatibility with Ledger Chrome app. It even does not work with Electrum BTC.  I had to recover my HW1 from paper backup. So the question is, can I use one Ledger wallet for both BTC and LTC? 

I have tested my HW1 with Electrum BTC, and it did not work after it was initialized with Ledger Chrome app.

So if it is possible to use one wallet for BTC and LTC, what combination of softwares should I use?

You should be able to use use it for BTC and LTC at the same time, just make sure you don't overwrite the existing hierarchical structure by creating a new wallet in Electrum. Instead, create a wallet by restoring from your existing seed. Thanks to HD wallets, you can use the same seed for both BTC and LTC.

Hi, I managed to have both LTC and BTC on my Ledger wallet now, but the problem is, I can't send my LTC out. It says "Could not connect to your BTChip dongle. Please verify access permissions, PIN, or unplug the dongle and plug it again."  I tried 3x , I enetered correct PIN and all 3 times correct values from my security card. I am able to send this way my BTC via Ledger chrome app, but I can't send my LTC from electrum.

What about sending BTC from Electrum? Does that work?
